The Sinister Stone of Sakkara from Autarch on Kickstarter

Autarch doesn't put out a lot of products, but the ones they do put our are pretty high quality. Their latest Kickstarter is a starting adventure, The Sinister Stone of Sakkara. It uses the ACKS rules, presumably, but that's really, really close to B/X except for the weird armor class they use.

The adventure is intended for six to ten characters of 1st to 3rd level, with a combined total of 8-12 levels of experience in the party. In the tradition of classic TSR adventure scenarios such as The Keep on the Borderlands and The Village of Hommlet, The Sinister Stone of Sakkara features a detailed starting base and small wilderness sandbox in addition to a dungeon. 
  • The adventure scenario is approximately 40,000 words.
  • The starting base includes a villa, headquarters, hospital, chapterhouse, infantry barracks, cavalry barracks, bathhouse, traveler's inn, and forum, all mapped and keyed.
  • The dungeon features two levels, the first with 75 rooms and the second with 39 rooms, mapped and keyed, along with two custom wandering monster tables. 
  • Additional delights include the "Adventurer Motivation Table", "Random Philosophical Meditations Table", "Profligate Imperial Banquet Table," and "Settlement Demand Modifiers Table" (for the mercantile venturers!), as well as a menu of options available at an Auran fast-food restaurant, excerpts of Zaharan prayer-verses, and more!
The PDF is only $5, so pretty good deal there, and the print version is $25, which is perhaps not, depending on how many pages it is (I'd guess 90?)
